My father in law was working out of town and brought me this coal. I'm pretty sure it's anthracite. It weighs a little over 100 lbs.

Cool deal. I've never had to break up my coal before.

This was mystery coal to me that I really thought was anthracite because it's hard. But I used it for the first time today and it SMELLS like bituminous, SMOKES likes bituminous and BURNS like bituminous.

I have a few hundred lbs of anthracite that I've been using so my blower blows continuously. When I used this coal today the fire went crazy. When I turned the blower off for a few minutes and turned it back on the fire would come back to life, just like bituminous. Anthracite turns off if the air supply is removed for a few minutes and won't come back on on its own.

I think my mystery coal is bituminous.
